I played with this racquet today, all stock, with the original Fairway grip and a bit of head tape around the head. Well, I bought it for my collection b/c it's molded from PC 600. This is the HEAVIEST racquet I've ever held in my hands. Just holding it makes it painful . Anyway it was very windy and cold and none of my other frames was HEAVY enough to generate a noce heavy ball. So I picked up this baby and ... swoosh, my playing partner is flying to the fence I couldn't believe how nice this stick is. It generates a very heavy ball whether you serve or just hit from the baseline. You'd think the volley would be tough b/c of its weight but it was a blast. It's very stable and powerful by means of its weight. Anyways, I just wanted someone who played with this frame to give some feedback, specs, etc. TY.
